No, he hasn't. You said that the terrible things that happen in this world are the result of sin. Well, what does that mean? Only good Christians
will be able to escape horrible things happening to them? You know that isn't true.
Not exactly. God's way out is accepting Jesus Christ as Lord. This is the only escape.
Just because you become a Christian does not mean you escape horrible things. You reap what you sow. You commit a crime, then get saved, that doesnt
mean you dont have to be punished. You still have to do the time.
Here's a personal one for myself. I have been saved since I was 13. I taught sunday school kids, youthgroup meetings and a bunch of other stuff. I
turned my back on God for a while and was miserable. I started to try to get right with him in 98, an he welcomed me back with open arms. Things
started going well. I landed a great job,was able to pay down $4,000 on bills, and buy a house by sept of 98. June of 2000, I had a accadent(sp).I
messed my shoulder up in a fall, and went on workers comp. I just had my 5th surgery on it may. I lost my job, and will never be able to drive truck,
or do hard physical labor again. Dr's say they may have to fuse my left shoulder,and i will lose all movement in it.
Sould I be upset?mad at God? I mean here I am trying to be a "good christian" and he let this happen to my family.For my family this is awful we may
lose everything we have.I know people think I should be mad,bitter,and frantic.
I'm not. I have learned to make due with what i have, and am greatfull that I had 30 good years with it. If anything this has brought my family
closer to God. We have to rely on Him for everything,and he has not failed us. We have never had a bill paid late,or gone hungry.We never told anybody
when food or money was not there, but God knew and provided. We would come home and find a envolope with money, or grocerys on the porch. Again we
told no one but God. Not her family, not mine we just prayed.
I know I rambled a little and probably got off track, but I wanted to share, and also show that bad things can happen to Christians also.
